Chronic pain affects 100 million people and produces annual costs up to $635 billion in the United States. However, the use of big data analyses, computerized pain measures, and noninvasive brain stimulation that help chronic pain management in vulnerable populations are not well understood. This lecture will address how to use these sophisticated methods in biobehavioral studies of pain in vulnerable populations.


  1. Discuss the prevalence and impact of chronic pain in the United States
  2. Apply biopsychosocial model and computerized pain measures for assessing and managing chronic pain in vulnerable population
  3. Evaluate the clinical efficacy and safety of noninvasive brain stimulation
  4. Compare different types of noninvasive brain stimulation in chronic pain management
